If you were to visit the 55+ gated golf course community of Brookridge (located in Brooksville, Hernando County, FL), you would likely notice that, for a community of 2400+ homes so close to Tampa and Spring Hill, it seems very far removed from some of the busier outlying areas. In a way, this is true, although one can drive to major stores in well under 10 minutes, and Tampa in less than an hour. Many people choose Brookridge for a retirement or vacation home because of its balance between activity and tranquility. For example there are many social events scheduled all throughout the year which you may choose to attend, but there is no pressure to do so. You will see the occasional person walking or jogging, but you won’t hear radios blasting. You can find all manner of clubs to join and people to talk to, but residents also know how to mind their own business and respect each other’s privacy. And, of course, there is a great golf course. One would be hard-pressed to find another 55+ gated community in the Tampa Bay area that strikes such a healthy balance of these elements.
